ChinaJoy 2016 doesn’t only have beautiful showgirls, there are some brilliant ideas coming out. Dark and Light is the one of them with a twelve-years’ development, this new sandbox MMO title is going places!
Started in the year of 2004, Snail has gone through a long run with Dark and Light. But the efforts doesn’t go in vain! With the new Unreal Engine 4 applied, Dark and Light has greatly improved its graphical quality compared to previous versions. Check the difference in the following picture.
The original concept of Dark and Light was to provide a deep and realistic world simulation, complete with complex systems for each of the necessary parts of a real world - weather, landscape, wildlife, plants, even laws. All the systems were connected, meaning that a change in any one system would drastically affect all the others, however, these deep, interlacing systems lead to numerous difficulties during the game's early stages of development.
Snail has followed the original concept and showcased a promising sandbox MMORPG at ChinaJoy 2016. I am looking forward to a test in the future. Stay with us for the latest news from Dark and Light.
